Power = work/time. (I just stated the work component of power above)

Snatch is a faster lift (to overhead) which is why it requires more power to do it at the expense of a bit of work though (and more technique as well).

If you're talking about racked clean vs. snatch they may be more similar because they take more or less probably a similar amount of time... the only difference is weight and distance of the bar traveled.
